Pilin' on the Paint

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Paint. Time to get messy!


The rubber stamp, including the sentiment, is from Whipper Snapper Designs.I colored it with Copics & used real paint for the egg & brush. For the background & frame, I used the ink smooshing technique, but with acrylic paint. The background piece is a watercolor paper that I first embossed with an egg-patterned folder. The frame was made from a dot-embossed paper. The wood die-cut strip is an offcut from a previous project.  I punched a flower border on the bottom of the card.
